Diversity Amid Globalizationexplicitly acknowledges the geographic changes in todayrs"s world by emphasizing both the homogenizing and diversifying forces inherent to the globalization process. This approach allows the authors toemphasize the interconnectionsthat bind people and places together.

Examples of the sorts of topics used to accomplish these goals include: The rise of Islamic fundamentalism in SW Asia. Aboriginal groups using high-technology tools to forge common political survival strategies. The economic and political integration of the European Union, contrasted with micronationalism and the factionalism in Europe. Ethnic diversification in the face of strong participation in the global assembly line in SE Asia.
